"The 2015 Côtes du Rhône Villages Cuvee Philippine (60/40 Grenache and Syrah aged in tank) is a rich, ripe, medium to full-bodied red that has a 2010 level of purity and polish. Black raspberries, cassis, toasted spice and licorice all emerge from the glass, and it has ripe, chewy tannin. Give it a year and drink through 2025."
A terrific Cairanne and Cotes du Rhone based estate, Domaine Les Grands Bois appears capable of fashioning outstanding wines regardless of the vintage. In addition to consistent quality, the prices remain more than reasonable."
